Old charm is in abundance with this family home that is coming to market for the 1st time in 60+- years. The home comes with the 2 car garage and a side lot for potential development to the left of the home. Maybe another home can be built on the extra lot. This home needs work to bring it back to its glory but can be updated and modernized. 3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor and 1 bedroom on the main floor with a full bath room in the main 1st floor bedroom. Cash or conventional buyer only. Front porch with entrance to a living room and front sitting room. The kitchen sits at the back of the home with rear exit to the yard that backs to the church behind it. Half bath is located on the first floor in the front room of the home. The winding staircase to the 2nd floor opens up to the 3 bedrooms and 2nd full bath upstairs. Full basement that is unfinished with walk out doors as well. 2 car garage with plenty of storage space. You can bring this home back to its former glory days or maybe you can decide to replace it with a brand new home in its space and potentially and 2nd home on the other side of the garage, or even take down the garage itself and build 3 houses. Dream big with this rare opportunity for this oversize lot in Delaware City. Home is being sold "AS IS" with no repairs to be made.
